Back in May we told you about Hardware Studio, a new initiative from Kickstarter, Avnet, and Dragon Innovation that’s aimed at supporting hardware creators. Today we’re very happy to tell you that Hardware Studio is live at… hardware.studio.
We’re kicking it off with some advice from people who know a few things about hardware. Eric Migicovsky, founder and CEO of Pebble Technology, writes about lessons learned from his Pebble experience. And Dragon CEO Scott Miller, who also helped build the Roomba, runs through the steps in the journey from idea to manufactured product.
As of today, Dragon and Avnet are accepting applications for Hardware Studio Connection. Kickstarter creators who participate in that program will receive personal advice from Avnet and Dragon engineers, among other benefits.
If you’re thinking about running a hardware project, or are already deep in the planning stages, we hope you’ll find Hardware Studio useful.
